Lorenzo Pietro Berra, better known as Yogi Berra, was an American professional baseball catcher, who later took on the roles of manager and coach. Also, he served in the United States Navy during World War II and earned a Purple Heart, a United States military decoration.
Berra played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) (1946–1963, 1965), all but the last for the New York Yankees. Berra was an 18-time All-Star and won 10 World Series championships as a player—more than any other player in MLB history. He appeared in 22 World Series and won 13 out of them. He is one among only six players to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award three times.
Berra is widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history and was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972. He was named to the MLB All-Century Team in a vote by fans in 1999.
Berra was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously by President Barack Obama on November 24, 2015.
